Identifying a Boat- Long Shot

#1

Post by VirtualHuck »

I was in Ketchikan Alaska in the spring of 2018 and saw an amazing boat that I hoped to find more information on. I poked around a bit and didn't get anywhere. I did find this cool site that shows you what vessels are actively sailing: https://www.marinetraffic.com/, but this boat hasn't been on it (I think it logs AIS vessels only).

The boat is named Pacific Pearl and is out of Seattle Washington. Here are pictures of the boat if anyone has any ideas on how to find more information.... (link to my shared Google Photos Folder). Pacific Pearl Pictures

There have been so many alloy boat builders here in Seattle over the years that have either gone under, been absorbed by bigger firms or been bought out and renamed that its anybody's guess who might have built that boat. That said, my guess would be Kvichak (now Vigor owned I believe) as they have a long history of building big custom stuff.

'Huck, Chaps,
what about Nichols Bros.? They've done lots of larger boats and unless they're no longer building might be a good candidate for this vessels' heritage?
